You Did It for Me

Rahim* was born in southern Iraq. Growing up, he loved cars and learned to fix them. As an adult, he got a job with a U.S. company fixing machines. When insurgents discovered that Rahim was working for the U.S., he became a target. He was granted a special immigration visa and arrived in the U.S. in 2012. Catholic Charities helped him resettle and now he is not only working but also studying at a university. He is grateful to Catholic Charities for the opportunity to live free from death threats and to start a new life.

In 2015, Catholic Charities agencies helped 14,350 refugees achieve self-sufficiency.
